Kettler Sport Arena, like all the best treadmills is a wonderful device. An essential part of any home workout, treadmills can make running training possible all year round, regardless of the weather. A good treadmill will also help you   lose weight fast, kickstarting your metabolism and strengthening your heart and lungs. Many modern treadmills are also quiet, unlike older running machines that did little to cushion your feet on the belt.

On the other end of the intensity-spectrum, the Kettler Sport Arena Treadmill also offers seven HIIT (high intensity interval training) programs straight out of the box. HIIT training is an excellent way to lose weight and to maximise training efficiency, should you be pressed on time. HIIT workouts are made possible due to the high maximum speed (18 km/h) and the incline capabilities (up to 12%) of this treadmill.

The Kettler Sport Arena Treadmill supports Bluetooth connectivity so you can play music through the speakers of the running machine. Not only that but once paired, you can control the playback on the phone with the dedicated buttons on the console of the treadmill.
